Introducing Graham: the only person designed to survive on our roads.
Evolutionary science and human vulnerability are at the centre of a new Victorian initiative to reduce road deaths and injuries. The Transport Accident Commission launched its latest road safety project, highlighting how susceptible the human body is to the forces involved in transport accidents. In a shift from its traditional road safety campaigns, the TAC has collaborated with a leading trauma surgeon, a crash investigation expert and a world-renowned Melbourne artist Patricia Piccinini to produce ‘Graham’, an interactive lifelike sculpture demonstrating human vulnerability.
